MATH 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very clear, detailed explanation in class, and gives out review sheets prior to most exams. Do the homework (even though it's not collected) and the full review sheets and you'll be fine. He also holds review sessions prior to the final, and other than a few curveballs, his exams are fairly straightforward. Highly recommend.

Math 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: C

I had some pretty decent teachers at CCNY and this guy is no where near that. He's confusing with what to study for tests. Gave the second test after the drop date. Covered series in 2 weeks before the final and refuses to lower your grade from a D to an F to retake the class. Barely taught matlab. Plus his lectures are dull and isn't engaging.

MATH 203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Hes a good professor but his exams are hard. He says the questions are easy, yeah easy to him. He gives hard questions on his exams. He isn't always available when students need him. Just do the homework and you will be fine. three exams and he doesn't curve.

Math 202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A+

Definitely one of my favorite professors. Lectures are always very clear and well organized. Available outside of class. Tests and grading are more than fair.

MATH 20300 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: D

all I can say is he's nice and teaches well. His exams were hard, uses all the hardest questions from the book, doesn't curve (which is common for math professors), and all his exams are cumulative. which means that you have to study everything you learn from that point. every time i ask him for help, he says he is busy. 3 exams, drops 1.

He's a good guy, but the Exams seemed to always be the most difficult example of anything in the book. Also, partial credit comes at a minmum

MATH201 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

he is ok. he helps you a lot if you ask for it. attendance is not mandatory and also he never collects hw even though he assigns them. 4 tests drops the lowest and a final. go over the examples ( not from the book) he does in class cz you will definitely see them on the tests. over all he is a nice professor

Explains very well and his test are pretty straightforward. He drops a test but doesn't curve. The grades are based completely off test scores, so try to do decent on his tests and good on the final and you should do fine in his class

MATH209 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I should have appreciated him more when I had him as a professor.I have had professors bluntly tell me that they don't care how I do. But he was always helpful, and had this adorable sense of humor. He taught very well, and explained EVERYTHING. He tried to make sure that even the least math savvy student had a chance at a good grade.

He knows his stuff and is a pretty decent teacher. But he rushes through the lesson at a pretty fast pace. You really have to do all the homework with this guy or else you will fall behind. He's helpful but strict.

Calc205 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a very helpful professor who takes out extra time to review before exams and before the final he spend a whole day reviewing. Plus he teaches at another school so even then he found time to help us out! Teaches clearly and is very modest and at times funny with his random comment about the graph looking like stewie from family guy's head. lol

Took summer course. Although the material was condensed he took time to make sure everyone understood. Offered tutoring hours before class. The BEST teacher!!! Does light review of material your expected to know for course. 3quizs (best 2), 3exams (best 2) and for summer he created the final instead of department. Gives reviews. HW isnt collected.
